Ingredients:  
Original recipe: 1 pound butter, 1/4 cup minced garlic, 1 cup whole grain mustard, 1/4 cup chopped fresh thyme, 2 lemons juiced, 2 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning, 2 tablespoons salt, 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, 3 cups panko bread crumbs (no substitutions), 1 (3 to 4 pound) side of salmon

My way: 1 stick of butter, 1 tablespoon minced garlic, 1/4 cup dijon mustard, 1 tsp. dried thyme, 2 lemons juiced, no Old Bay seasoning because I don't have any, 1 tbsp. salt, 1 tbsp. pepper, 1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs, 1 side of salmon

Directions:
Directions:
Whip butter with an electric mixer until fluffy. (I softened butter in microwave for 10 seconds and just mixed everything with a spoon.) Add garlic, mustard, thyme, lemon juice, Old Bay, salt, pepper, and panko and mix well. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper (yes I use this for everything I bake) and lay salmon, skin side down, on pan. Blot salmon with paper towels to remove any moisture. Crust the salmon while the butter mix is soft, allowing a 1/4-inch crust. At this point the salmon may be refrigerated. Preheat over to 425 degrees. (I had to turn mine up to 450 to get a good color to crust in the middle of cooking) Bake for approximately 10 minutes for a slightly pink fish. (I bake longer to brown crust and we like our fish well done.) Use your imagination, substitute dill for thyme, horseradish for mustard, crushed potato chips for the panko. Have fun!

Personal Notes:
We just tried this and really liked it. It is fast, easy and would work for a fancy dinner for the boss. Served with rice and a salad (I used Rice a Roni herb and butter but any of them would do or you could really go to town and make your own rice pilaf).
